2 ways to do this :

opkg update

opkg upgrade


2) from xbmc, go to programm / GeeXboX updater and do an upgrade

    Hi !
    Playing files from Samba shares is now working on my Pandaboard. Good job !
    Meanwhile, I experienced some instabilities when reading files one after the other: XBMC sometimes reboots.

    the updates seem to be available only for x86_64.
    I tried to upgrade my geexbox-3.0-i386 installation and got

    Collected errors:
    * opkg_download: Failed to download http://download.geexbox.org/binaries/i386/latest/packages//xbmc_pvr-20120711-git71d53d1-2_i686.opk: HTTP response code said error.

    I checked http://download.geexbox.org/binaries/i386/latest/packages/. There is no xbmc_pvr-20120711-git71d53d1-2_i686.opk as mentioned in http://download.geexbox.org/binaries/i386/latest/packages/Packages (only …-1).
    Could you please provide this new .opk for i386 platform?
    Many thanks advance!
